Plants and Trees to Keep in Your House for Prosperity

Plants and trees add an element of beauty to a home and also help cleanse the air. However, an effort needs to be put into choosing the right sort of plants. If they don’t comply with the principles of Vastu and are placed in the wrong direction, it could have an adverse impact on the inhabitants of the house. According to Vastu Shastra, plants which are thorny and milking should be avoided as they are inauspicious. Peepal and Banyan tree are sacred and they must be placed in the temple and not at home.  astroYogi provides a few pointers that you can keep in mind when it comes to selecting the kind of plants for your place:


Basil plant
Basil (Tulsi) is a plant which is highly revered.  It must be kept in the North, East or North-east direction.


Bamboo
Bamboo is an indicator of luck and peace. It brings fame and wealth.  However, these days dwarf, potted bamboo is an easily available option but it is criticized by some Vastu experts as they feel it goes against nature.


Money plant
Money plant should be placed in either the north or the east direction. It is considered very lucky and there is a belief that money plant leads to a rise in the wealth as well as income.


Coconut and Ashoka tree
Coconut and Ashok trees should be placed in the courtyard of the house. It is believed that the Ashoka tree helps remove sufferings and grief and brings joy.


Banana tree
Banana tree should be there in the Ishan Kon (Northeast) direction of the house.  It signifies good health and mental peace. Banana tree is considered very sacred and is even worshipped.  On Thursdays, people worship banana tree along with praying to Lord Vishnu.


Neem tree
The presence of Neem tree in a house generates positivity and Neem also has medicinal properties. It is considered auspicious as per Vastu. Neem tree should be placed in the Vayavya Kon (Northwest) corner.


Lastly, if we talk about the kind of plants that are suitable to grow in a kitchen then Mint, Green chilli and Coriander plants can come under this category. These small plants have health benefits and are useful as per Vastu standards.
